will produce 12 million jobs if we do not mess up what president obama has already done. >> and welcome back to "the ed show." former president bill clinton on the campaign trail speaking in wackishaw, wisconsin, earlier. president clinton has proven to be the most effective surrogate for president obama or any president for that matter. clinton has held 13 events in 7 states over 4 days drawing crowds in thousands. he was a huge hit in good old fargo, north dakota. using the 42nd president to stump for president obama has been a good strategy. >> bill clinton is always a thrill. he's been one of my favorite presidents. >> we're just five days from election day. what are you feeling? >> excited and very hopeful that we'll have obama continue for four more years. >> so that's the 42nd president, what about the 43rd? george w. bush isn't stumping. he's in the cayman islands, not welcome news if you're mitt romney and have money stashed down there. tonight bush is the keynote speaker at something called the cayman alternative investment summit. according to the summit website, institutional inv
and a half million new jobs. >> this morning we learned companies hired more workers in october than any time in the last eight months. >> mitt romney had a different take. >> unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> he said the president has failed to deliver. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate. today we learned is actually 7.9%. that is 9 million short of what he promised. >> the unemployment rate rose to 7.9% in september. it also shows some players added 171,000 jobs in october. the longer term trend is also a mixed bag. >> 160,000 new jobs. that is enough to keep pace but it is not enough to repair the damage from the recession. >> what does all this mean for the election outcome? >> most americans have made up their mind about the candidates and certainly about the economy. a little news is not likely to change that. >> about 4% of likely voters remain undecided. it is not clear whether the numbers will sway them either way. >> what else did you see that was interesting? >> it shows growth in manufacturing and construction as well as the ho
, and today we learn it's actually 7.9%, and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> brown: what's more, romney warned, sticking with the president's economic policies will guarantee gridlock and worse. >> unless we change course, we may be looking at another recession. you can choose real change. you know that if the president is re-elected, he will still be unable to work with the people in congress. he has ignored them, attacked them, blamed them. the debt ceiling will come up again, and shutdown and default will be threatened, chilling the economy. >> brown: in turn, mr. obama accused his opponent of trying to scare voters over their economic futures. he pointed to a romney ad running in ohio that charges jeep is shipping jobs to china. >> you've got folks who work at the jeep plant who've been calling their employers worried, asking, "is it true? are our jobs being shipped to china?" and the reason they've been making these calls is that governor romney's been running an ad that says so. except it's not true.
to create the 12 million jobs he's promised? or what barack obama's going to do in his second term? do you have any sense of that? >> well, in the case the 12 million jobs, as we know, you don't have to do anything and you'll get 12 million jobs. any number of economists and moody's analytics have pr ticted that simply by keeping present policies in place, 12 million jobs will be created over that period. so it's not much of a boast. as for the tax policy, my guess is that he doesn't know and he c is just saying things. he has said he wants to cut taxes -- rates by 20%. and i believe he does and would but when you ask him why that won't be a $5 trillion increase in the deficit, he says -- and i love the third person, "if mittd romney says there won't be an increase in the deficit, there won't be. that's why and how." >> i know how he could, because some of the studies he cites make assumptions that would let him beco revenue neutral. he could take the major deductions away from everyone making more than $100,000. r that would effectively do it according to one of the studies. he could als
populated area of the country. >> millions of people are going to be affected. >> reporter: by noontime in washington, d.c., president obama breaking off from the campaign took up the mantle of office once again to urge americans to heed all the ominous warnings. >> the most important message that i have for the public right now is, please listen to what your state and local officials are saying. when they tell you to evacuate, you need to evacuate. do not delay. don't pause, don't question the instructions that are being given. >> reporter: by afternoon, sandy spawned snow storms in west virginia and flood warnings as far west as chicago. and tonight, as we see the massive impact all along the east coast, the sheer scale of this storm is staggering. almost 4 million people without power. more than 1.5 million evacuated. 14,000 flight cancelations across the country. and from space tonight, the gigantic storm seems to have earned its halloween monitor, frankenstorm. from land tonight, the moon peeked through the clouds at the eye of the storm. and as i say, we can now start seeing some
to at least 48 people in eight states and nearly 6 million people in 15 states and the nation's capital are still without power tonight. also today, president obama got a firsthand look of the jersey shore, one of the areas hardest hit by sandy. here they are in a photo on marine one. the president said he will help. >> we are here for you. and we will not forget. we will follow up to make sure that you get all the help that you need until you rebuild. >> the iconic board walk in seaside heights, new jersey, is one of the places the president saw today. it's made famous by bruce str g michael, i know you toured there. what did you see? >> reporter: we went right up and down a number of towns there, ocean beach, normandy. we spent a couple of hours there with the local police chief. i can tell you, it was absolutely extraordinary, the amount of damage that was done by hurricane sandy, erin. there's gas leaks there that continue to be a problem. we seen a stream of gas trucks go across the bridge to shut off the gas. there was one particular area in the area of brick, where about three o
romney a talking point. >> unemployment today is higher than on the day barack obama took office. >> eliot: what he didn't say was that the economy was losing 800,000 jobs a month when obama took office. during his term the economy added millions of jobs. professor at us berkeley goldman school of public policy and author of "beyond outrage: what has gone wrong with our economy and our democracy and how to fix it." hello, mr. secretary. >> hello eliot. >> eliot: there was a massive conspiracy that the economy was picking up steam. do you think the numbers prove there is an accelerating fact that there improvement. >> the reason why unemployment ticked up was because more people are trying to find jobs now, and in that particular survey the bureau of labor statistics only looks at the number of people who are trying to find jobs. when more people are trying to find jobs because they are more optimistic about there being jobs there that means the unemployment rate actually ironically goes up. the real important number is the establishment survey number. that 171,000 new jobs is a m
. the obama administration ordered 12 million gallons of unleaded fuel and 10 million gallons of diesel. tanker trucks will take the fuel to gas stations in new york, new jersey and other storm stricken areas. it is a welcome news for the thousands that are trying to leave. >> i'm getting out of the city. the city accident love me. i've been here my whole life. there's nothing. the ocean tore through my house and i lost everything i known 27 years and i'm five years living in the streets. >> gas supply dropped when super storm sandy flooded pipeline equipment. new jersey governor has ordered gas rationing to cut down on lines at gas stations. it's called odd even rationing. vehicles with license plates that end in even number cans only fill up on even numbered days of the month. odd number and specialized plates can go on the odd days. the plan is expected to work since only gas station worker cans pump gas in new jersey. >>> have you noticed that you are taking a lot less at the pump. bay area prices hit record levels a few weeks ago and now they've dropped 60 cents. >> typically i spe
's down from 8.5 million at the storm's peak. >> president barack obama was in new jersey joined by governor christie. the president told the people there in his words, we're going to be here for the long haul. >> it was back to school today for most of the students in our area. many kids from maryland to virginia returned to classes. a few schools remained closed because of lingering power outages. >> some of the worst damage we've seen has been along the new jersey shore. tonight, we have a report from kingsburg, new jersey. the police there say about 70% of that area is under water. jim ronfield has our report from there. jim? >> reporter: kingsburg is on a long list tonight of bayshore communities in crisis. a little progress to report about that water you referenced. we've seen it receding here on beachway. a lot of debris left behind and this storm has left behind scars to last a lifetime. three days post sandy and kingsburg, new jersey is still like other bayshore communities -- in crisis mode. roads still have standing water, sand and debris. homes bear fresh scars of the
romney said... and what his plan would do. president obama: i'm barack obama and... i approve this message. >>> right now at 11:00, states of emergency declared in maryland, virginia and the district as millions along the east coast brace for impact. sandy could bring nearly a foot of rain, high winds and snow. >> also that monster storm is already having a major impact on the campaign trail. both sides have canceled weekend event in virginia beach. >> tonight, all eyes are on sandy. the storm could be one for the record books and we have it covered. >> erica gonzalez has evacuations along the beaches. the local storm preparations but first, chief meteorologist with the latest. >> we look at the latest track right now, what is th is going to show you, this storm still a hurricane with winds of 75 miles an hour to the north at about 7 miles per hour. the pressure is down just a ttle bit. and it is going to continue on that northerly track. as it does that, it will then shift out to sea, as we have been talking about, becoming a tropical storm. back it hurricane potentially and
mind what happened next, this story at 11:00. president obama: there's just no quit in america... and you're seeing that right now. over five million new jobs. exports up forty one percent. home values... rising. our auto industry... back. and our heroes are coming home. we're not there yet, but we've made real progress and the... last thing we should do is turn back now. here's my plan for the next four years: making education and training a national priority; building on our manufacturing boom; boosting american-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation-building here at home. that's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney's... and decide which is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve this message. >>> first there were questions about lavish spending on travel and entertainment. now the met
than it was when president obama took office and there are still 23 million americans struggling for work. on tuesday, america will make a choice between stagnation and prosperity. when i'm president, i'm going to make real changes that lead to a real recovery so that the next four years are better than the last. well, stocks are lower despite today's better than expected jobs report. cnbc's mandy drury is here with what's moving your money. what's going on, mandy? >> hey there, chris. stocks are now lower, but they did initially tick higher after that report basically showing that employers stepped up their hiring last month 171,000 jobs. and they say hiring was also stronger for the previous months of august and september. the unemployment rate -- and this is a tricky one. because even though it inched up to 7.9%, that's only because more people, i guess, are feeling confident that they can get a job so they're getting out there and they're looking for work so, therefore, they're countered as unemployed. >> car buyers, meantime, are maybe in for a little bit of sticker shock. s
. they depend on transit. well today through president obama's leadership, secretary lahood leadership, the vision of the leaders on the stage we are here to commit $942 million to fulfill that promise. [applause] >> with the signing of this grant agreement we are taking $942 million paid by california taxpayers and to create jobs now when we need them. we're also using those dollars to improve the quality of life, and as jackie spear pointed out plan for the future and economic prosperity of this whole area. when this subway extension opens as senator feinstein pointed out there will be 44,000 people using this light rail line. what she didn't point out that will make it the second or third busiest light rail in the united states. this is an environment that needs to be made and once it's built are gone the days when we have senior citizens watching the drive by and waiting for a bus that won't stop and then they have to stand on the bus and that bus has to crawl through the same traffic as the cars and get there in way too long period of time. means we will get into a elevator and
. >> while romney attracts his stars, the edge goes to obama, with heavyweights like george clooney and beyonce helping him raise $20 million. >> when you see celebrities coming out to political events, it brings a different group of people into politics. >> while there is not a lot of hard evidence that celebrity endorsements directly influence a voter's choice, the arms race continues. democrats count on morgan freeman and tom hanks. republicans counter with someone like clint eastwood. >> so do celebrity endorsements help or heard presidential candidates? >> i got to tell you meatloaf's endorsement for romney put it over the top. one person who says they have been influenced completely or mainly by a celebrity endorsement and that person should probably not be allowed to vote. >> i ted ted nugent or john voight or turner. >> i think the issue is amount of money they can help these candidates raise. look at the amount of money that has been spent on this race at a time when this country has so many pressing needs, for shame. it shouldn't cost that much. >> even eva longoria we mad
we drive up to 55 miles per gallon backing out 6 billion metric tons of co2, that's what obama wants to do, back out 3 million barrels of oil per day from the persian gulf, all the oil we import. the koch brothers want romney, and romney has promised to roll back the fuel economy incentives. it's going to endanger the planet, and it's going to endanger young men and women who have to go to the middle east to import the oil. >> professor, back in the '60s we called such people pigs. pigs, no, really. they don't care about the planet, don't care about the destruction of war, all they care about is their stuff, and they want more of it. is that what we're talking about, greed? i'm talking about people who is working in a coal mine. that's hard work. i'm talking about those that won't listen to you or science because they want more stuff? >> listen, chris, i'm not into name calling here. >> well, i am. >> fine, that's your job, not mine. we have a serious job to do. the administration has actually started to put in regulations to reduce emissions. u.s. emissions are actually down modestl
>>> this morning on "early today," president obama travels to new jersey to survey the jaw-dropping devastation inflicted by sandy. >>> thousands remain stranded in hoboken. millions will remain without power for much of the week as the massive rebuilding and cleanup gets underway, and all of this when millions of americans are getting ready to vote. certainly not a time for tricks or treats this halloween wednesday. captions paid for by nbc-universal television >>> good morning, everyone. i'm lynn berry. 46 people have now been killed in the disastrous wrath of hurricane sandy and many more remain trapped. the storm could wind up costing $50 billion in property damage and lost business. just minutes ago we received brand new pictures from the jersey shore where fire is burning in a neighborhood just feet from the ocean. this may be the result of a rap toured gas line or downed fire line. the fire is one of the barrier islands. so far there's no sign anyone including fire crews can get near the flames. a mandatory evacuation order was given for that area before the storm hi
$1 million in minnesota. well, the obama campaign has said they're going to match all that, go to the air waves to match one that. what we're watching is both sides probably spinning their case. republicans say they're seizing new opportunities, in other words, they're going to win the swing states but also win these. democrats say the romney camp knows they've lost steam in that seventh battleground state area, and they've got to go looking for some other where, some other chance to move it. right now, let's bring in erin mcpike now and james paterson. erin mcpike of course is with real clear politics, and james peterson is a lehigh professor and grio contributor. erin, give me a sense, is ohio pretty much obama territory now? >> we think that it is. and all of the national -- or excuse me, the ohio public polls show that, yes, president obama is leading. he lost a little bit of ground, but he's made that back up again. but one thing i would point out, chris, is that the obama campaign is seeing very different internal polling than the romney campaign is seeing and republicans
, obama is in favor with those early voters. ohioans have cast more than a million ballots and we're seeing in virginia, nevada and ohio, hundreds of thousands of ballots tasked and obviously in nevada, more than 50% of the electorate has already voted early. experts say that early voting has really changed the face of elections. listen. >> when you have 35 to 40% of the entire electorate voting early, some of them voting in september, much less october, early november, it's going to transform a presidential election. that's what we've seen. every day is now election day. >> with some states continuing early voting really right up to election day, we'll learn which party benefited. however, both president obama and governor romney say that they have the advantage with early voters. so both of them continue to encourage their base to get out and vote early. gregg, back to you. >> gregg: elizabeth, thanks very much. stick with fox news election night. complete coverage beginning here on the fox news channel at 6:00 p.m. tuesday with megyn kelly and bret baier. you can catch shepard
47 million people on food stamps. that's an increase of 14.7 million people or 46% since obama took office, and those people buy the smaller units at dollar general. say what you want about the president, the increase in food stamps is a huge tail wind for dollar general. and it's natural they would have some major stock-up business ahead of this storm. however, hurricane sandy is just icing on the cake for dollar general. i can't do any trades because they're too flawed but this investment, i like. i would be telling you to make this investment without the food stamp stock-up business from the storm. why am i such a big fan of this one? dollar general is the best of the dollar steers. best management, it's been able to deliver consistent double-digit earnings growth for the last several years. second, there's been trouble in the dollar store space recently. i think this industry is still a terrific fit for the times we're in. it ain't no boom here. an environment of high unemployment, slow wage growth, expensive gas prices, you better believe that consumers are still going to trade
. so far the storm claimed 74 lives. more than five million homes and businesses are without power across the east coast. most of those averages are in the new york area. meantime, president obama saw the damage on the jersey shore firsthand. during the tour, the president pledged federal support for the long haul. >>> right now, local utility crews are close to restoring power to just about everybody who lost electricity during sandy. dominion virginia power has the most work ahead of it. about 3,100 of its customers still in the dark. pepco has restored power to virtually all of its customers, reporting just 13 without power. novak has restored power to all but about 380 of its customers. >> the lack of power is keeping several schools in our area closed. students from four schools will get another day off, lotion elementary, southern middle. chapel forge early childhood center in prince george's county is also without power. all schools in pendleton county are closed because of power issues. >>> there is still much to be done in the wake of hurricane sandy and some of the devast
institute --www.ncicap.org-- >> millions across the northeast began another day without power. some surrounded by water and others with no where to call home. good afternoon, everyone. wednesday, president obama visited some of the area's most devastated by hurricane sandy. as daniel lee reports, people are hanging onto the president's promises their communities will be restored. >> today marks another day toward recovery, but for people evacuated from the jersey shore, it is also another day lost from their home. three days after sandy left the northeast in crisis, finally, science of recovery. >> we are all working together to make sure the new jersey moves ahead. >> police say they are making progress clearing roads left impassible by sand and homes tossed into the street. >> you feel you are going to wake up any minute. it is sickening. >> for evacuees who have not been allowed back to see their homes, the wait is agonizing. >> what can you do? hopefully everybody can rebuild. >> in hoboken, people are pumping murky floodwater out of garages. in queens, assessing the damages to
has spent $65 million and a lot of time trying to woo virginia back, and even some obama advisers are saying it looks like romney may pull off a win here. >> we're going to win virginia. you know that? we're going to win. >> and ohio has been critical. in fact, necessary to every republican presidential win. but president obama has held on to a small lead there. his strategists are buoyed by polling that shows a 2-1 lead for the president among early voters. the president staged the finale of his 48-hour marathon campaign in ohio. >> i am glad to be back in cleveland, ohio. >> despite the money, the trips, and the speeches, ohio and virginia remain stubbornly in the toss-up category. a newly released cnn poll shows the president with a 50 to 46 lead in ohio. former ohio governor ted strickland and virginia governor bob mcdonnell up next. namely, other humans. which is why, at liberty mutual insurance, auto policies come with new car replacement and accident forgiveness if you qualify. see what else comes standard at libertymutual.com. liberty mutual insurance. responsibility. what
